    Pros

    Amazing co-workers, nice atmosphere. The company culture is upbeat and fun. Even when under tight deadlines there is still a relaxed feeling in the office.

    Pros

    Generally, great co-workers all around. Good people that get sucked in and are worked to the bone.

    Cons

    No growth, no genuine care for employees, HR is laughable along with some questionable managerial choices.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There are other people in this company besides the French employees.

    Pros

    Good work/life balance and young people

    Cons

    Poor management, no strategic direction for the firm/employees, very disorganised, no career prospects for current employees. Complete disregard for wellbeing/career of employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A focus on the happiness, career prospects of employees would be very helpful. It would dramatically reduce the high turnover of employees

    I worked at Vente-Privee.com full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Some very talented, dynamic thinkers in lower level positions. I met some wonderful people who are destined for great things should they be allowed to contribute their strengths and ideas. The attempts at company culture can be fun-- monthly outings, snack room, weekly all-hands meetings.

    Cons

    I have never encountered a management team that had such a disrespectful way of leading their staff. It is clear that the people in power got their due to their personal connections to the French Counterparts and not due to their leadership or actual skills. It is also very clear that the company is struggling with direction and is still trying to figure out how to do the FUNDAMENTALS of their e-commerce business which is frightening.

    There have been four CEOs in 2 years that have all been fired by the French because they are forward-thinking, strategic and know the US Market. If you aren't French, you have no chance for growth at this company. The entire Brands Department is new within the past year and there is still turn-over if you aren't completely worshipping the executive team, who are utterly disgraceful leaders.

    Compensation is below average and you will work hard for peanuts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop using the excuse that "we are a start-up". You are in Year 3 and are backed by (2) Three Billion companies, you shouldn't use this catch-all excuse for performing terribly.

    Learn how to manage! Be open to new items and improving the core principles of the business. Absolutely be more transparent and reward those who are working hard and not just your friends.

    Please put more focus and attention to process, operations and integrating technology into the business. Just because one business solution worked in the French business model doesnt mean it will work here.

    The basics of the business in regards to internal process should be the main focus. Determine how to actually perform day to day operations or the company is failed. You are going to continue to lose top talent if you continuously create this toxic environment with needless, tedious work that could be easily automated if you allocate the right resources.

    HIRE A TECH TEAM who actually knows what they are doing and can support the daily functions of the other teams.

    Pros

    The people are great and the weekly meetings seem to help keep everything in perspective. It helps to build a sense of community in the company.

    Cons

    I'm not very of their business model. When you charge people and then they don't get what they order for a month, they tend to lose faith in your business.
